Welcome to the Diocese of Lake Charles

LAKE CHARLES — Xavier University of Louisiana alumni will gather for the 11 a.m. Mass at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church on Sunday, March 4, to commemorate the feast day of St. Katharine Drexel, the foundress of the Blessed Sacrament Sisters and Xavier University of Louisiana.

Mother Drexel was also an important sponsor of Black Catholic and Native American churches and schools throughout South Louisiana and elsewhere in the southern and southwestern U.S.

Former students, friends, and family of Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary Schools, both of of which were staffed by the Sisters of the Blessed Sacred, are also invited to join the alumni at Mass.

St. Katharine Drexel, pray for us!
